(giaimo) the hawks beat the spartans in december but they were missing their best player denzel valentine. (mike gesell) denzel is the type of player that just makes everyone around him better and he's a big part of their offense when he is playing and as a player you want to go against the best players every single night so it's going to be a good matchup for us we are going to have a lot of different guys on him. (giaimo) and one more test the hawkeyes are going to have to do it on the road. (anthony clemmons) you know know it's tough to play there. the crowd is always into it. they feed off their fans and they're just a tough team in general i mean after
teams beat them. (giaimo) the senior guard out of lansing, michigan knows how hard it is to beat sparty on the road. something iowa hasn't done in 23 years. (anthony clemmons) i mean there's probably a lot of teams that haven't won up there in that long. but to be able to win there that's special.
